A good friend told me this story
last night...dedicated to his Mom
and Dad

~
Dog Tails
~~~


With  callous  hands  he  polished  up  old  Betsy
A  keen  eye  tests  the  sights  he  knows  so  well
The  dogs  have  worked  themselves  into  a  frenzy
If  they  could  speak  they’d  have  some  tales  to  tell
~
A  hug  for  Mom  he  promised  to  be  careful
then  looked  at  me  said  “next  time”  with  a  smile
“The  fear  of  something  happening  would  be  dreadful”
He  jumped  into  the  truck  with  cousin  Carl
~
This  time  the  Hunt  was  hindered  by  poor  judgment
Some  Red  Wine  far  too  much  they  did  partake
Guns  and  Drunks  combined
they  must  have  lost  their  mind
‘Cause  the  ending  almost  always  brings  a  wake
~
A  tear  was  on  his  cheek  as  he  loaded  up  the  truck
With  his  gun  he  propped  Carls'  body  against  the  door
He  was  sobbing  when  the  truck  ...  got  home  with  lots  of  luck
He  knew  he  was  in  trouble  that's  for  sure
~
Mom  met  him  in  the  yard  with  a  shock  that  hit  her  hard
Ten  years  off  her  life  it  did  its  damage
Dads'  tears  and  then  the  gun
Carls'  red  encrusted  shirt
A  scream  from  Mom  was  all  that  she  could  manage
~
Then  up  walks  Grandpa  Joe
says ... "this  ain’t  blood  ya  know"
As  he  looks  at  Mom  with  a  grin  stuck  on  his  lip
~
"Unless  I  miss  my  guess
he's  created  quite  a  mess
It's  some  Red  Wine  from  his  stomach
on  his  chest"
~~~
